Most of them are being transferred to an IP 169.254.255.255 And no, this is not my own IP adress....

Can anybody please help me, I just want to get rid of these connections!

Kind regards and thanks in advance, John S.

This does not look like FTP. FTP normally runs over TCP; these packets are UDP. TFTP uses UDP, but there's nothing in these packets that indicates TFTP.

169.254.255.255 is not the IP address of an individual machine. This is the directed broadcast address for the 169.254.0.0/16 network. These are broadcasts.

Based on destination port 57621 and the presence of the string "SpotUDP" in the data portion of the packet, this is probably Spotify, which is a streaming music service.

How to remove unwanted software is not a Wireshark question, but this should give you enough information to Google for an answer.
